Graduation Day

I graduated today.  I am now a Certified Church Administrator!  Woohoo!!!

This certification is something I had wanted to do for years, but when I started having kids (and especially having them two at a time), it had to wait. 🙂

I have been working toward the certification for the last two years.  I have gone to classes the last two summers, did a project and then wrote a paper about it. The first year, my class was at the Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, and last year’s was at Dallas Baptist University.

It’s a big deal to me.  It’s a goal I’ve dreamed of accomplishing.  I’ve worked hard for it.  Chris supported me over the last two years by letting me go to the classes and handling the kids while I was gone.  My parents have chipped in and done their part in helping Chris while I was gone too.  So many people at church helped along the way.  Chris graciously edited and formatted my paper when I was ready to throw the computer into the wall. 🙂

I was thrilled to walk across the stage today!  It was fun to have my Dallas Church Administrator friends there to cheer me on and attend the reception afterwards!
